Alternative Approaches to Student Involvement in Teacher Education: Three Research Studies. ATE Research Bulletin 12.
Greenstein, Jack; And Others
Three research studies investigated student involvement in teacher education. "Belief System Change in Student Teachers" was designed to investigate the possible changes that occur within the belief systems of student teachers, in particular, changes in values, Machiavellianism, authoritarianism, and dogmatism. Generalized social psychological measures were employed to eliminate one individual rating or perceiving another. The second study, "Assessing a Teacher Education Program," assessed the needs perceived by prospective teachers. The study considered choice of vocation, quality of the teacher preparation program, student teaching experience, and suggested improvements. The final study, "A Study of the Verbal Behavior of Creative and Less Creative English and Social Studies Student Teachers," was concerned with a) differences in verbal behavior between student teachers rated creative and those rated less creative, b) differences in pupils' verbal initiative and response to these groups, c) differences in learning activities employed by the two groups, and d) differences in selected personal and professional characteristics between the two groups.
